With one magic word...Shazam!

I'm back in business! In lieu of restarting the late, lamented Duck, I have decided to become a blogger. Not that the world needs to know what I am thinking on a daily basis (and by daily I mean "so sporadically that it may never be updated ever"), but simply, some of you enjoyed my forays into the insane and with precious little joy in the world, it's the least I can do to give you some. Joy, that is, not insanity.

Just as Dan Rather has given me some. (Joy, that is.) The veteran newsman who tilts slightly to the left continues to stand by documents that are more fake than a feature dancer's bodacious tatas. Anyone actually
alive in the 70s, and this should include Rather, should have known that a D.O.D. memo should have been typed and should have looked something like this (In case your browser makes a subtitution, I am using the Courier font to type this, usually thought of as the typewriter font. I am using it not so much to poke fun at Dan as I am just used to the look of it. That's because I typed on an actual typewriter. Back in the stone age. I used to ride the bus with Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble. But I digress. A lot. Moving right along...)

Here you're likely to hear about current events in the the worlds of politics, entertainment, sports, and bodacious tatas. (Perhaps if I use the phrase "bodacious tatas" enough I'll actually develop an audience.) So welcome. Enjoy your stay. And until you start having fun the beatings will continue.

Great to see your blog, John--er, Lightning Man! A very juicy topic to start with, too. Since Rather has been having a slow motion nervous breakdown since the 80's, I'm not surprised at his behavior, but I had hoped that a major TV network news division would have had enough institutional dignity and ethics to have second thoughts about this sort of thing.

The Orb of Agamotto tells me that tomorrow night Dan Rather will receive an "authentic" copy of the Necronomicon and reveal the Dark Prophecies about Bush and his service to the Dark Ones!
